Philip Quade is a climbing and adventure photographer, climber, and musician based in Calgary, Alberta, and the Canadian Rockies. Climbing photography became a passion and core focus for Philip in 2013 and has since paved the path for his future, spawning adventures in Africa, Alaska, and Australia, coast to cost across Canada, and throughout the USA. Philip has just completed a 3 1/2 month road trip traveling the USA and Canada, exploring a mix of new/unknown and classic climbing destinations, growing his portfolio and fulfilling his own personal climbing goals.

Though still fresh in his career, Philip has taken no delay in carving a place in the adventure media market, claiming publications in Gripped Magazine, Rock and Ice Magazine, and Outdoors Unlimited, as well as producing work for Climbing Escalade Canada, Skratch Labs, Butora Climbing, Flashed Climbing, and contributing to many Pro and Amateur athlete portfolios.

Philip can be found regularly covering local events with Calgary Climbing Centre, and on rock throughout Alberta’s Bow Valley.
